Isabella Wallace and Lea Kirkman
Learning delivered through teacher talk is often the easiest option for both teacher and pupil, but it may not be the best option as it stops pupils having to think for themselves.
Throughout this book the authors seek to offer a range of strategies and practical activities that allow pupils to participate in learning and to better understand complex topics and skills. The strategies offered can be used across all phases of teaching.
The objective, they suggest, is to get the pupils working, thinking and talking more than teachers. Cutting down the amount teachers talk in lessons allows for more time for pupils to develop their thoughts, and gather feedback on how they are progressing.
